Hawaii & Google Maps!

So no posts for a little while since we were altogether as a family in Hawaii. Before you get too envious, read on! This was our first time to the Big Island.  Nice trip, but there was a lesson learned here – do NOT simply look at the resort photos of where you’re staying if […]

Happy to be Done, but Worn Out!

Dear Daughter Today is your last final. Life will be great by the end of this day. I suspect you will be extremely happy to have gotten it all done. May I suggest not looking in the mirror afterwards just in case you’ve aged 30 years this week. I suspect you will be all smiles […]

Time to Obtain Superpowers!

Dear Daughter Sorry for my absence, but I was gone seeing if Krypton had somehow reassembled itself so we could have a home to go back to. Sadly, nothing there but some old plastic bags from the local market floating in space. So, we are stuck on this planet with its archaic, torture laden educational […]

Hot Showers on a Cold Day!

Dear Daughter I’m still alive and I know finals are on their way, so I hope you are also still amongst the living and not part of the living that envy the dead. Those snooty dead folks all peaceful like and not a  worry in the world! While that may sound good, they don’t get […]
